This season hurts

This season hurts

The Eagles have lost the battle of attrition The story of the 2017 Eagles is one of overcoming significant injuries to go on to win the Super Bowl. That team had relatively few injuries, they were just concentrated at key roles. The 11 personnel quintuple of Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor, Torrey Smith and Zach Ertz missed all of 2 games, both by Ertz. The loss of Darren Sproles hurt, but LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement and Jay Ajayi missed only one game, and that was Ajayi being rested in Week 17. Seven defensive starters played in every meaningful game, two missed one game, and one...

Eagles vs. Saints inactives: Lane Johnson WILL play against New Orleans

Who’s in and who’s out. The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their Week 11 game against the New Orleans Saints. The following seven players have been ruled OUT: Darren Sproles, Jalen Mills, Nate Sudfeld, Deiondre’ Hall, Chance Warmack, Jordan Mailata, and Matt Pryor. The big news here is that right tackle Lane Johnson is back in the starting lineup after missing last week’s game against the Cowboys. Johnson is playing through an MCL sprain and a high ankle sprain so it remains to be seen how effective he’ll be. Haloti Ngata is also active despite...

A lack of a running game is hurting Carson Wentz

A lack of a running game is hurting Carson Wentz

Carson Wentz could really use a running back worth a darn to help him out. On their way to the Super Bowl last year, the Philadelphia Eagles rushed for 2,115 yards as a team, 3rd-most in the NFL. Their 3,737 passing yards were 13th-most. So yeah, the Eagles ran the ball a lot last year, and they were really good at it. Losing Darren Sproles early in the season hurt, but the trio of LeGarrette Blount (766 yards, 4.4 Y/A), Jay Ajayi (408 yards, 5.8 Y/A), and Corey Clement (321 yards, 4.3 Y/A) combined for 1,495 yards on the ground and an average of 4.7 yards per attempt. There were two games...

Eagles vs. Saints Final Injury Report: 4 out, 2 questionable

NFL Week 11 injury updates. The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report in advance of their Week 11 game against the New Orleans Saints.

With Darby and Mills out, it’ll likely be Sidney Jones — who isn’t listed on the final injury — and Rasul Douglas starting at cornerback. Avonte Maddox could then play at nickel cornerback with Corey Graham...

The following seven players have been ruled OUT: Lane Johnson, Darren Sproles, Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Nate Sudfeld, Deiondre’ Hall, and Matt Pryor. Johnson’s absence is surprising considering there was an expectation that he’d play despite the fact he has a torn MCL and a high ankle sprain. Johnson being out means Halapoulivaati Vaitai will start at right tackle. Big V has a tough task ahead of him as he tries to contain dangerous Dallas...
